AQUATICS

Adult Aquatics

Water provides the ideal environment for exercise. The natural buoyancy of water reduces weight bearing stress, allowing greater ease of movement with less impact on joints and muscles. The increased density of water creates even and fluid resistance; toning and strengthening muscles with greater balance and efficiency. Whatever your level of physical activity, water exercise is an excellent way to improve fitness and maintain health at any age!
